Wood grinder for compost

RAPID CITY, SD – Jeff Barber has worked at the Rapid City Solid Waste Division for 18 years and currently manages their yard waste and landfill operations. The division processes three different types of compost: Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), yard waste, and a 50-50 MSW/yard waste mix. The MSW and 50-50 composts are processed in a controlled environment. The yard waste operation manually waters and turns compost to maintain an aerated, hygienically safe, and finished product.
